Join us as we celebrate Brown alumni filmmakers with six Brown alumni short films from the horror and thriller genres.
Accomplice - Todd Cattell '90 (Actor) — A man is forced to experience the memories of the person he accidentally killed.
Black Gulch - Michael Strode '98 (Writer/Director/Producer) — Bank robbers roll into the wrong small town and encounter supernatural opposition. It was supposed to be a simple job, but the bank is empty, the town is deserted except for a small boy, and a mysterious black-robed figure is picking them off one by one.
Boy Eats Girl - Sarah Gurfield '99 (Director) — A short romantic comedy about two zombies who meet-cute while fighting over a dead woman’s intestines. Their brains have died...but not their hearts.
The Coconut Man - Irmak Tasindi '08 (Co-Director) — A short film about a young woman tortured by vivid night terrors consults her psychiatrist, who quickly discovers that her problems may not be in her head.
Frankie’s In Town - Adam Hersko-Ronatas '18 (Co-Creator/Actor), Sam Rubinek '17 (Co-Creator/Actor) — Devon’s solitary LA lifestyle is suddenly interrupted when an old high school friend Frankie shows up at his door unannounced. When small gestures of kindness turn into covert acts of hostility and everyday conversations turn into subtle usurpations of power, a friendship slowly falls apart as the lines between reality and illusion blur into a nightmare.
Little Brother - Spencer Mandel '09 (Producer) — Keith, a white elementary school teacher, journeys to South Los Angeles to investigate the home life of his gifted student Lamont. When he meets the boy’s elderly Grandmother, they begin a polite dialogue about Lamont’s frequent absences from school, but the conversation grows increasingly hostile. Unbeknownst to Keith, there’s a special ingredient in Grandma’s sweet tea… and the teacher may be in store for learning a powerful lesson of his own..
